Hospital Medical Consumables are generally fast moving and require frequent replacement, which means they must be carefully managed. The number of items in stock must be monitored constantly.
Medical consumables and equipment includes
syringes, needles, sutures, staples, packaging,
tubing, catheters, medical gloves, gowns, masks,
adhesives and sealants for wound dressing
and a whole host of other devices and tools
used with a hospital or surgical environment.
Depending on the device, mechanical testing
can be carried out in tensile, compression or
flexure, in dynamic or fatigue, or impact or with
the application of torsion.
